DIXIE CANNONBALL
Hank Williams
Written by Vaughn Horton
Key of E

(E) I'M  A'HEADIN' BACK TO DIXIE,

THAT'S THE (A) PLACE I LONG TO (E) BE,

WHERE THE (A) COTTON GROWS AND THE (E) SWANEE FLOWS,

THAT'S (F#7) HOME SWEET HOME TO (B7) ME,

(E) WHERE THEY MEET YOU AND THEY GREET YOU,

WITH THE (A) SWEETEST HOW YOU ALL,

WELL (E) SHUT MY MOUTH, I'M A'HEADIN' SOUTH,

ON THE (B7) DIXIE CANNON- (E) BALL.



CHORUS:

(E) ON THE DIXIE CANNONBALL, ON THE (A) DIXIE CANNONBALL,

JUST (E) LISTEN TO THE WHISTLE, IT'LL (F#7) THRILL YOU ONE AND (B7) ALL,

AND I (E) KNOW THERE'S SOME ONE WAITIN',  WITH THE (A) SWEETEST HOW YOU ALL,

WELL (E) SHUT MY MOUTH, I'M A'HEADIN' SOUTH, ON THE (B7) DIXIE CANNON- (E) 
BALL.



(E) WHEN I CROSS THEM SMOKEY MTNS. I'LL BE (A) COUNTIN' EVERY (E) MILE,

WHEN THE (A) WHISTLE BLOWS, I'LL BE ON MY (E) TOES,

AND I'LL (F#7) SHUFFLE DOWN THE (B7) AISLE,

AND I (E) KNOW I'LL NOT BE LONESOME,

WHEN I (A) SEE THEM TREETOPS TALL,

I'M COMING (E) THROUGH ON THE BIG CHOO-CHOO,

ON THE (B7) DIXIE CANNON- (E) BALL.


Repeat chorus:



(E) Yes, I'm goin' back to dixie, that's the (A) place I long to (E) be,

Where the (A) cotton grows and the (E) Swanee flows,

That's (F#7) home sweet home to (B7) me,

(E) Where they meet you and they greet you,

With the (A) sweetest how you all,

Well (E) shut my mouth, i'm a'headin' South,

On the (B7) Dixie Cannon- (E) ball.


repeat chorus:
